Matthew Erskine BVM&S (Dist) MRCVS Clinical Director

Matthew is originally from Ross-Shire and graduated with distinction from the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Medicine in Edinburgh in 2015. During this time he also undertook further rotations in oncology as well as rotations at Colorado State University (USA) in neurology and ophthalmology. He started work in a busy small animal practice in Ayrshire working in the main practice but also running one of the branch practices. In 2016 he returned to the Highlands to join Crown Vets, where he had initially seen practice as student.

Matthew really enjoys the variety of cases, patients and species he gets to see. His particular areas of interest are surgery, neurology and ophthalmology. In January 2017 he started training for the Certificate in Small Animal Surgery to develop advanced surgical skills and further the surgical options available to patients at Crown Vets.

Within Crown Vets he is also the designated Clinical Mentor for veterinary students undertaking placements which involves co-ordinating their placement and ensuring they receive consistent and appropriate training in all the core clinical skills.

Matthew also sits on the British Small Animal Veterinary Association’s (BSAVA) Scottish Committee which helps develop and deliver ongoing training for veterinary surgeons. Within this role he is also the nominated Scottish Representative for ‘PetSavers’, which is the charitable arm of the BSAVA ,whose objective is to raise funds for research into currently untreatable conditions in pets. 

In his spare time Matthew enjoys getting outdoors, playing tennis and going to the gym. When he isn’t feeling as energetic he enjoys playing video games, watching films, practicing guitar and perfecting his card tricks. He is also an avid traveller and tries to cram in trips abroad as often as he can.
